Two firsts in one day! After landing in SF today I drove five hours north on Hwy 101 to Eureka, CA where I will visit several CVS/Longs projects. The drive north took me through the Redwood National Forest where nearly half of the remaining old growth redwoods are in this park system, including giants five stories taller than the Statue of Liberty. They can live to be 2000 years old and grow to over 360 feet tall. Walking through this redwood grove this afternoon was an unforgettable experience.
